What challenge, problem or motivation inspired you to make one small change?

If you were out on the soccer field watching a game, there was no WiFi.

Tell us about your one small change:

Tim Yu from the Cambrian Athletics Department wanted to start live streaming games and we wanted to have an access point installed on the scoreboard. Facilities dug up the ground and ran a conduit to the field. This happened back in September 2019.

What was the result of your one small change?

There have been a few games this year that could take advantage of this. Other students and staff can now take advantage and use data while out in the fields (ex: powerline, spectators, etc.). Staff and student WiFi is available outside in this area.
